Whoa. We believe you so very much.

About me: It's hard for me to write anything in short. I somehow never got the funda behind precis in school. Must have skipped the class or something. So when it comes to writing on something like me, i can go on writing. To overcome that problem , I'll just leave a few words : Lazy, Sleepy,Boring, Cold, Prick, Activist, Extremist, Movie lover, Quiz Enthusiast, Cruciverbalist, Avid Reader, Movie Buff (k that's twice, and quite warranted too), Music lover, Intolerant, Idealist,Highly Critical ...blah blah blah. I currently reside in Chennai. Pursuing an Engineering degree. Update: March-'12: Finished my engineering degree, worked as a systems engineer for three years, and back to electrical engineering (Masters) View all posts by Karthik

How did you manage to get shot of it, is the person who wrote letter your friend?

I think he really worked hard to get 100. Damn it! I always wanted to get 100 in math and lost my final chance in numerical methods. Cha π¦

Only shows that by memorising problems in the recommended text book you can get 100 in Math without knowing anything about the subject.

It’s hilarious to think, that these people memorize even maths. sheesh!

@Rachel,

It was on the cover of a Singaravelu book. Can you believe it !! π

@Vinod,

There is no “HE” I’d say this is a fake. Maybe there was never a student. The letter doesn’t have a name and it has no date. Publicity crap. I personally feel, Singaravelu is the worst book to use. Kandaswamy, Gunavathy, Tilakavathy is alright.

Don’t worry about a centum in Math dude. Doesn’t matter much.

@Marc,

How can you comment on whether the person didn’t know “anything about the subject” Also, as I said earlier, it need not even be true. It’s from the cover of a book by Singaravelu himself.

Should have mentioned that in the post.

@Rachel,

Certain things in math have to be committed to memory.

Cover??? i’ve never seen coz mostly i get his book only for maths. Memorizing certain things like formula is okay, but how about the whole sum along with the answers? Think π

@Rachel,

Must be the new edition or something. Whole problem with answers does defeat the purpose. Actually solving questions by itself defeats the purpose. I am sure 99% of people (under AU obviously) cannot formulate problems and find the right tool to solve them. Sad.

I think I get what you’re saying.

You think that expressing the real world problem in mathematical terms is important. It is. However, I can’t see what purpose is defeated by solving problems. Anyway, it may just be me. I feel smarter after a nice good problem solving session π

@George,

Solving problems is good. It keeps your brain healthy. But then its the formulation thats of paramount importance. Atleast in engineering. That way we put real life problems as mathematical problems and get guys like you to solve it for us. π

What’s the use of solving a double integral or a triple integral when you don’t even know when we encounter such equations.

Also, I have noticed that any real life problem we solve almost never comes under the generic rules. It’s always an exception. π (There are exceptions to this statement ofcourse)

Ha ha, Karthik. I agree perfectly, actually. As a matter of fact, for anyone who wants to take a little effort, our Maths course does present real world problems that end up in a solvable way, with a little effort, and some algebraic acrobatics.

@George,

Algebraic Acrobatics ? No wonder I never got a perfect 10. π

lolz….nice going champ….i too have never seen a singaravelu buk with tht letter….anywaz ROFL

very funny!!!

ROFL indeed.

Aparpntley you tnihk ltteres in a nmae are inrtehacngeable. They aren’t.

@Geroge,

Sorry about it. But then calling it a typo would have been sufficient. π
